Ruby Blues Winery is one of the top wineries to try in the Naramata Bench near Penticton as its quite busy. I was pretty excited to come for a visit since I missed it on my previous trip to Penticton last year.

They are only open from May till October.

You know you’re in the right spot when you see their Volkswagen decked out in hippie love.

Like most of the wineries on the Naramata Bench, their view of the Okanagan Lake is also very nice.

When we were here, they had a few wines to try:

  • Pinot Gris
  • Gewurtztraminer
  • White Stiletto
  • Late Harvest Chardonnay
  • Peach & Love & Bubbles
  • Red Stiletto

Tasting are absolutely free, just give a smile in return.

Prudence administered our tasting and she was so engaging. You could see she was genuinely excited about all the wines being poured, that we all became super engaged.

All the wines were good, but the 2 that stood out to me was the Peace & Love & Bubbles as it makes a great bubbly to go with any meal or celebration. Also the Pinot Gris was a nice wine with fruity notes that I really enjoyed.

Once you’re done the tasting, head over to the wine shop/ gift shop and you’ll find things that will remind you of the winery like the VW cars and the red stilettos.

Overall, it was a very fun winery. If you can get a wine tasting with Prudence, I would highly recommend it.
